Did anyone get anything in the mail about a potential power window recall? (danger of the switch overheating and melting). I just did. The letter said that there will be more to come.

Sorry guys, your could have mine but I threw it out. It talked about adding some grease to the switch or replacing it.
I'm not too worried. It's nothing like the apparently very dangerous air bag recall I kept getting letters on from Honda for my '03 Odyssey. Still got one after I had it done. What was VERY interesting about that was they used the wrong parts the first time :doh: so they gave me an urgent call not to drive the it. They came to the house that day picked up the van and left a loaner. I was out for a few hours and the van was back when I got home. I wonder if heads rolled on that one. :wall

I had an electrical fire in a rig once so I'm motivated to get it checked.

If you don't get a letter about it, maybe it's not on the list for those affected. You can check and see in the Toyota.com/owners website. I didn't wait for a second letter. Dealer said they are now checking/greasing/fixing them all across all Toyota lines. Typical Toyota--their snail mail notifications are lame.
